Youbeauty expert, Julie Ricevuto, shares her Raw Honey Hair Mask, which hydrates and soothes a parched and irritated scalp. Perfect after a day at the beach or post-pool dip.
Comb mask through hair with a wide tooth comb, then massage scalp for five minutes then cover hair with a shower cap for 30 - 60 minutes. I prefer to use cling wrap as the occlusive nature of the film helps generate heat and allows for better penetration of the mask. Rinse well using a mild shampoo, and voila` a calm scalp and lush soft, shiny hair.
Combine two tablespoons of coconut oil with a tablespoon of honey. Heat gradually in the microwave for 10-20 seconds (depending on wattage - best start with short increments to avoid burns!) until the mixture is warm and has the consistency of a thick lotion.
